I’m sick of grumpy people around me. How can I make them be nicer, Pat asks, Mishu answers

I’m sick of grumpy people around me. How can I make them be nicer, Pat asks, Mishu answers

Dear Pat:  Sometimes people (or animals) are grumpy because they’re in distress, pain, or feeling stressed. The other day my human took me to meet a man. He was nice, but I really, really had to poop… so I kept barking at the man. After I did my business, I was a lot friendlier.  Try to understand why these people are grumpy. Maybe you can help them and they’ll be nicer, or at least you won’t be as offended…. <3 Mishu

What to do about noisy neighbors? Kelsey asks, Mishu answers

What to do about noisy neighbors? Kelsey asks, Mishu answers

Dear Kelsey: Try to make friends. People have a hard time being disrespectful of their friends. ~ Mishu

The Inside Story

Imagine if your noisy neighbors were your friends?  They would probably be a lot more considerate of you and your desire for less noise.

Instead of turning it into a conflict (which some people really get off on) – flip it! If you show kindness and friendliness to people who are doing you wrong, there is a very good chance that they will just see your humanity and respond with compassion and friendliness. read more

People don’t like it when you push them down on your way to be first. ~ Mishu

People don’t like it when you push them down on your way to be first. ~ Mishu

Yea, so people don’t like it when I knock them over on my because of my drive to be first…  That goes for you humans too: it’s okay to compete and try to be first, but don’t knock anyone down on your way.  #BeKind

The Inside Story

Dear Mishu is definitely an alpha — and you see that most on walks or hikes. If she’s not first, leading the way, #1 explorer, she’ll pull on the leash until whoever is holding it moves to the front.
I don’t know whether it’s her instinct to protect everyone or just her excitement to explore, but it is a habit that we haven’t really tried to break her of.  Mostly because Mishu’s bold, free spirited love of life is what we admire about her so much. We want to be like Mishu because she is so excited to be first!
Finishing First – the Kind Way
Still…

We definitely do not encourage that behavior in Mishu!
The obvious parallel to humans is that so many of us do knock people over, or walk all over them, in our drive to finish first, win the promotion, etc. Clearly that is a good strategy for some in the short term, but in the long term — Mishu’s right — people do not like that. This is NOT what Mishu means by Now is Now!
There might be short term gain to be had from finishing first while ignoring human decency, kindness, and basic manners, but eventually people will figure out that this is your M.O. and they will not want to work with you anymore. Call it Karma, call it fate, call it getting your due:  treating people like they’re expendable just because you are focused on yourself and your goals is never going to be a good strategy! read more

Juan asks about Freedom; Mishu answers

Dear Juan,
I wish I could run as fast as I can for as long as I want, but I wouldn’t want to give up treats, a comfy place to sleep, and my humans….  Did you know that some humans they aren’t free – and they also don’t get good food, a comfy place to sleep or to be with the people they love?  Human trafficking is a terrible problem. You can help by visiting my friends @FreedomUnitedHQ

The Inside Story

As many of you know, Dear Mishu had a tough puppyhood in a place where animals are often neglected. There are so many animals in this situation in the world, that it can be easy to overlook the horrible crimes we humans enact on our own species. read more

It’s hard for me to focus when listening to other people. What should I do, Morgan asks, Mishu answers. #DearMishu

It’s hard for me to focus when listening to other people. What should I do, Morgan asks, Mishu answers. #DearMishu

Dear Morgan,
Me too! I often tune out when my humans are talking because I’m thinking about my own agenda (squirrels)…. Instead of thinking about your own agenda (what you’re going to say next), try to think about repeating what the person talking to you is saying.

I feel like my boss doesn’t respect me. What can I do? Lisa asks, Mishu answers.

Mishu: My solution to everything is #FOCUS. FOCUS on your goals. FOCUS on what you need to do reach them. Do that, and don’t sweat the rest. Am I right?

#DearMishu

The Inside Story

According to some studies, over 50% of people do not feel respected by their leaders or managers at work. It can be frustrating if you feel like your boss doesn’t respect you. It can also be humiliating, damage your self-esteem, and make you stressed.  In fact, people cite not being respected as their biggest problem at work.

Dear Duke:
I can’t stop rolling in the grass, even though it makes my face #itchy…. it just feels so good! Lately my humans have started giving me @nhvnaturalpet ‘s Natural #Allergy Kit, which helps a lot!….

Dear Trixie,
It depends. If you’re working as a volunteer for a cause you believe in, that’s great. But if a business wants to use you & your hard work to earn money – I don’t think so. You’re worth more than that, Trixie!

Love,
Mishu

Dear Mishu Tries Something New

Dear Mishu:  When’s the last time you tried something new?  From: Julianne…

Great question, Julianne – Watch this video to see Mishu’s answer!

Mishu is always telling humans to Try Something New and live like Everyday Is a Gift. Check out this video of the last time Mishu tried to follow her own advice! #TrySomethingNew #DearMishu

The Inside Story

It was back in January, when Guatemala bred and California raised Mishu, experienced snow for the very first time. She walked down the steps, took a few steps, and immediately tried to go back up. The video doesn’t show everything, but there was about 5 minutes of Mishu repeatedly being lured or carried out to the snow, and then escaping back under cover or up the stairs. read more

How do I tell a guy I like him? #blogpaws

I tell everyone (who I like) that I like them by SHOWING my #excitement when I see them. Maybe you can try that? And don’t worry about all the other stuff, like if he likes you back or how much he likes you or other things that will drive you crazy. #DearMishu #Love
